Another Day

Another set of yoga done.
I like yoga. 
I like the stretch I feel because I'm very inflexible naturally. The stretch makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something, like this working out thing is actually working.
 It's the little things that really make me feel accomplished in working out. It's not the weight loss, or the inches lost, though that would be nice, but no. It's really about seeing the sweat ring around my neckline increase as I run harder. It's about craving sugar and junkfood less, and wanting more fruits and veggies. It's about that crave to sweat, that crave to work.
I want my venture to end as a success story. I don't want to stay the same, that's why I started. 
And this is why I started this blog. Because this journey isn't easy. It isn't an overnight thing. It's difficult and sometimes you do lose motivation and you do just want to quit. It's a struggle to keep going. Some people would make it seem differently, that they never gave up, but that isn't the majority of wishers. 
I started this blog not only to motivate myself, but to show that this isn't an easy journey, that it is difficult. But that even though you can lose motivation, you can gain it back. Don't give up though. 
I can do this. And so can you.

I ran again!
Two weeks of illness, business, and laziness later and I did it!
Goodness, I feel fantastic!
Like beyond.
And I finished my papers and readings, am signing the lease on my apartment, and am working like a fiend.
I feel so great today.
I look like a dork.
But I'm chillin today with my leftover chipotle and my phone.
A match made in heaven.

My absence. I have been sick, working forever, and just plain pooped.
Also, it's the last week of school before finals, so it's a bit stressful as well.
However, I have not been able to work out in over a week.
And I've gained probably about five pounds.
And I feel gross.
And I'm not happy.
So I'm going to try to change that this week.
But, right now, I have too much work to really write a lengthy post, so I will leave it at that.
I'll be back soon friends, I promise.
Until then, it's just me and my Popol Vuh and my tea.

I have a lot of them. 
I have a lot to deal with and no clue what to do.
I wish I could exercise to cope, but I feel like that will hinder my healing from the flu process and all.
However, since I cannot, I will keep it bottled and just explode soon.
Hopefully explode through sprinting on the treadmill. 
That would be nice.
But in other news,
Go Caps! Rock the Red!

Still Sick

This will teach me to laugh at my dad when he tells me to get a flu shot.
The flu-y part of my illness is gone, so I can walk without pain and my temperatures aren't fluctuating as much as a menopausal woman. However, I am still super congested (but I mean, who really needs to breathe out of one or even both nostrils? I'm spoiled, I know.), and I'm coughing up a lung every fifteen minutes or so (ab workout? lolz.). I was going to do some yoga today, but then I decided that chillin on the couch, watching bad Sunday afternoon television whilst trying to figure out my monetary situation was so much more fun. 
Maybe I'll get around to plucking my eyebrows today.
Then it'll be a productive day. 
Good God, Lemon. I look tired. But I love tea. : )

Flu Season

was over I thought without me getting it.
Apparently not, because I have the flu.
It sucks.
It hurt to walk across campus to go back to my room to shower. 
And my stomach flipped because I ate two plain pancakes.
I ate nothing yesterday.
I am miserable!
And angry at the flu. This is my "too sick to properly convey anger" angry face.

So Sick

So sick.
Can't even move.
I want boyfriend back from bandtour now.

Just Kidding

Somehow I tapped into my inner motivator and got in some yoga.
I'm proud. I didn't think I had it in me. But low and behold, I gots it.
Maybe it was typing it and seeing it that made me go "oh helllz nah, I gots to work out."
Because that's how my inner voice sounds.
But yeah. No more excuses. I got this.
Tree pose is my favorite.
And yes. I do indeed do yoga in jean shorts.
At least they're stretchy.


Motivation. Not weight. I wish it was weight. or inches. That would be baller. 
But no, I am losing motivation. I am so tired and my stomach feels weird. I want to go run, but I am all around too tired and yucky feeling to do so. I am disappointed in myself. I set way too high of goals to reach sometimes. But I will reset and start anew. 
Tomorrow is a brand new day.

was a work day so no work out for me.
It's either work or work out, I've decided. There's no time to do both! 
But today, my boyfriend leaves for two and a half days for a school band trip and I'm going to be eating well and working out like a boss. Today, I'm going to run and do yoga and some strength training. So, in other words, everything. And I have one more exam, one more paper, and finals between me and summer. Only three weeks until I can wake up, run, make a healthy breakfast, and work. So it'll be great. And I'm beyond excited.

run in a week! 
I feel fantastic. like beyond. 
And I threw in some yoga. 
I had some apples and yogurt, some veggie sushi, and some matzo with peanut butter. It is Passover after all. But anyways, during my run, I had Nelly pandora station on my iphone and I was jammin. It was beyond baller. And my nails are gorgeous. It's been a great day so far.
yum yum yum. 
Now on to apartment hunting with my future roommate today! I wish all days off of work were this awesome.

Too Few Hours

In a day! Tis how I feel right now.
Yesterday, I skipped my 10-12 class in order to work on a paper due for my 10 am class today. All because I have two hours of downtime in a given day and all I want to do is sleep. I have class from 230-340 then work from 4-10 today. Then I want to sleep. I have no time to relax, eat, workout, or breathe! p.s. I first typed breast and almost left it like that. That is how exhausted I currently am.
But I'm lying in my boyfriend's bed while he's at class because there are too many people in my room. I never want to get up. 
But I at least got to use my employee discount for the first time last night! Thanks dad! and got these suckas:

So comfy. So great. So discounted at 25% off!

Strange weekend in terms of eating.
No exercise because my father was in town, so I was indulging. I need to get back on the crazy workout wagon. But I digress,
My weekend involved eating cheesesteaks at a Yankees preseason game, eating miscellaneous snacks on the beach, eating almost nothing, then eating seared tuna, edamame, and a nice piece of salmon. I was all over the place. I'm trying to get back on track, but tis a bit difficult. 
But, I started my job at Sports Authority. Which means I'm on my feet for five hours at a time and I can't snack while I'm there, so I might get a bit better.
However, I haven't been feeling well lately. I've been perpetually thirsty. Anyone know what it might be?
